Reviewer: Gaslamp 1 review from this member

Just back from another enjoyable stay at Camping Caradon and the high standards haven't slipped at all. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful with nothing being to much trouble.

Toilets and Showers are always clean. The hot water can run a little slow during busy times but apart from that it's fine. Pitches vary in size and shape, so best chat with the owners when booking to ensure a suitable pitch.

We had quite a bit of rain during our stay but found the field drained well. The site shop is small and so is limited to how much they can stock, but there is a well stocked SPAR just a couple of minutes down the road (by car).

Will definitely be going back just haven't decided exactly when ye

Stayed at this site for 8 nights in July and couldn't really fault it. Toilets are modern and clean, pitches flat and fairly dry despite the wet summer, play park was well used by our youngest, owners were friendly. Site has a small shop but the Spar shops in Looe and Plynt are more useful. We didn't use the site bar/restaurant as it's not our thing but didn't notice any noise from it unlike some of the bigger 'clubhouses'.

The site is a bit out of Looe, or anywhere else, and despite the walks others have mentioned, in reality it's in the car to go anywhere for most people. If returning to the area I'd quite happily use it again though.

Only one minor gripe. It's great that the site allows dogs, but if your going to charge for them then provide some on-site facilities to justify the charge. As others have said, dogs aren't supposed to be exercised on site, and the narrow lanes outside the site aren't great for this either. Not too bad going outside and turning right where there's enough of a verge to allow them off the road, but on the lead, for short first-thing/last-thing walks. Since our dog was out with us every day it wasn't a huge problem keeping her exercised but a better walk close to the site would have been welcome.

Just returned from a week at this site, during the main summer holiday period. The site was very popular with young families and had plenty of facilities to accommodate them.

There is a small play area to the front of the on-site bar and an indoor 'family room' which had pool tables, table tennis and a dart board, along with a few toys for younger children. There is separate bar area for adults but with a glass partition, so not necessarily giving families a feeling of exclusion! There is an extensive menu to choose from, which does need to be pre-booked - beware though, portions are huge - and I can eat!

The facilities are fab - solar powered and always spotless, despite the weather! An under cover washing up area is also provided, which again was spotless. The whole site is immaculately maintained, with the wardens and their staff all working extremely hard to keep it that way.

Looe is within walking distance, (approx 4 miles)via a beautiful riverside, woodland walk starting from the John Fowler site a little further along the lane. There are plenty of buses and they stop directly at the site entrance, so no need to walk both ways!

Polperro is not as easily accessible on foot directly from the site. The coastal path starts from Talland Bay, which is approx 2 miles from site along the main road and down a typical narrow Cornwall lane - not a pleasant experience in a car, never mind with young children or dogs, on foot!

However, once at Talland Bay there is a large car park, beach cafe and pub serving food and drinks and lovely coastal walks to both Looe and Polperro. Talland Bay is a dog friendly beach and there are lots of dog friendly pubs in both Looe and Polperro.

This is a superb site, which sadly for us, is just that little bit too far from the coastal paths and the start of off lead walks for our dogs and it is for this reason that we will probably not return.

Rang and booked the site on the phone same day as arrival for 1 night. Relatively easy to find on one of the main roads in Looe. Easy check-in on arrival, with code given for the access barrier.

On the pitches they insist you set up and face a set direction on the field and place certain items in a set order, presumably to aid privacy and reduce noise irritation. Although the site was less than half full we were put adjacent to other campers, when we felt we could have been spaced out slightly more for the benefit of everyone.

However, we were placed on a grass pitch with a geogrid base, ensuring better footing for the vehicle. And thank goodness we were. The site doesn’t seem to be on high ground, but the night we stayed you’d have thought we were close to the summit of Everest with heavy, heavy rain and strong winds! But the next morning, we were able to easily leave the pitch.

There is a social club on site and a “restaurant” serving food, although the food times are extremely limited. There are also all the usual facilities, including Elsan point. We didn’t use any of them, too wet outside!

A regular bus service is available from the camp site, even though it is off the main road as it turns around at the entrance to the park.

We’d return if in the area as it was a competitive price and we only stopped over for a night so didn’t really get the full picture, but there are probably better overall sites in the local vicinity.

Just returned from Camping Caradon, after a glorious week or so from the 21st July to 28th July 2012. My wife and myself arrived at the site to be met, greeted and welcomed by Stephen, the owner.

Everything we could have wished for and more was available to us. There was nothing we could find by way of faults against any of the facilities or the staff.

This was our first visit here, and upon leaving informed Stephen we would by contacting him before Xmas 2012 to pre book our holiday there in 2013.

In short, we found the facilities spotless, the site generally very well maintained, and we loved every second of our stay there.

Thanks and congratulations go to Stephen and Lene for a very well run and looked after site.

We are definitely back there next year. Can`t wait!

Just returned from another visit to this great little site with my wife and teenage son.

Very good location for visiting the local attractions with a bus stop outside the site that runs every hour to Looe and Polperro.

Owners very pleasant and helpful, had pitch No12, very roomy pitch.

Toilets and showers a little dated but were always clean and well kept, with no silly button to press in the shower.

The site grounds are kept immaculate Good food in the clubhouse with reasonable priced drinks.

One big plus for keeping my son quiet was the very good free wi-fi.

All in all a very good site that we will visit again.

Reviewer: Rosie+Scrumpy 6 reviews from this member

Excellent friendly service from the initial booking on the telephone. Site is very well signposted from the Looe to Polperro Road.

Site is very level & well laid out. Toilets & showers always tidy & very clean. Shop in reception selling all the basics. You can even order a newspaper for the next morning.

Handy on-site bar & restaurant. You have to order your food in advance & food is not served every night. Sadly not too good on the current menu for vegetarians. However the local pub (The Jubilee Inn in Pelynt) is brilliant for food with good vegetarian options. Recommended booking in advance here as well as it is very popular.

Dog walk in the woods about 10 minutes walk along the lane if you turn left out of the site.

There is a little playground area by the bar but it only really looked suitable for younger kids.

The bus service is useful during the day but does not come to the site in the evening.

All in all a great site that I would recommend & be very happy to stay at again.

I have nothing bad to say about this site at all. We had a fantastic time despite the weather.

The staff are friendly and helpful. Facilities were always clean and the site club was good for a giggle of an evening with entertainment some nights. Will definitely be returning!

If I was to say something negative it would be that the pitches are not as big as I'd like them to be but that's just me wanting more room.

My wife and I spent 2 weeks at Camping Caradon (in May, in pretty foul weather). We were greeted warmly upon arrival and directed to our pitch adjacent to the shower/toilet block. We loved the site and it's location. Our pitch was level and well kept.

The toilet/shower block was conscientiously maintained and very clean despite the weather conditions. The site was quiet, there never being more than 8 units on site during our stay although, obviously, this was a seasonal thing and the site was ideally located for Looe, Polperro and some gorgeous coastal walks.

We thought our tent was quite rare (an Outwell Tennessee 6), but for most of our stay, the only other tent on site was. Wait for it. An Outwell Tennessee 6, ha ha! Owned.

Anyhoo, having no dishwasher whilst 'glamping'(fail), we were obliged to wash up during our stay. During this arduous procedure, my untrained digit sustained a deep laceration that needed medical attention (superglue and steri-strips). The owners couldn't have been have been more concerned or attentive, calling at our tent 3 times to make sure I was ok. Although this was just a minor injury, I really appreciated their genuine concern. THANK YOU.

We didn't use the bar facility, although I wish we had and the site was always quiet before 2300hrs. We shall return.

As we arrived the owners made us feel very welcome and promply changed our pitch as we had 4 kids to give us more space, the site was not busy and the pitches were nice and large.

All the facilities were spotless and plenty of hot water etc.

The family bathroom is excellent as we can control the kids and put them through the shower without any escapees.

The bar and resturant looked very nice although we did not use them. A good games room for older kids or adults and a small but great pirate ship climbing frame and swings thingy (Our kids four under 6 loved this)

Whilst here we had an entire 12 hours of very heavy rain, thankfully overnight, but the next morning the ground was still solid and did not get muddy at all, great drainage!

A good position to visit Looe, we followed the coast all the way to Plymouth and also visited St Austell and Fowey.

We felt very welcome here and especially liked the personal touch we received when Lene and Stephen (the owners) bothered to say goodbye early as they were going out on the morning we left.

We enjoyed this site despite the best efforts of the drought busting weather over the May bank holiday and would stay here again when we are in this area.
